Would you rather have Jalen Brunson at $20 million or more or Malcom Brogdon at $22 million over the next three seasons? #Knicks #NBA – 2:41 p.m.

You’ve heard enough of me. So I reached out to #NBADraft analysts @BrettSiegelNBA, @KyleIrv_, @ChaseHughes and @ Barlowe500 and asked:
1. Who will the #Pacers choose at No. 6?
2. What do you think of Shaedon Sharpe?
3. Will Malcolm Brogdon be traded? indystar.com/story/sports/n… – 12:40 p.m.

How does Washington get Malcom Brogdon?
It’s HARD to match salaries.
Would you give up 10 for Brogdon? 🀒
Would you abandon Kuzma for Brogdon? – 12:32 p.m.

Michael Jordan being so cheap that he voluntarily trades for Russell Westbrook as a way to create money for Miles Bridges would be a war crime. – 11:32 am

Chris Herington @Chris Herrington
Sift through draft/trade rumors, connect the dots. It looks like Brogdon for KCP/10 would make sense as a starting point for a deal. – 6:12 p.m.

Johnny Davis on OKC: β€œI think it’s a very good organization. I’ve watched them since they had Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. I think it would be a good choice if they drafted me. – 12:42 p.m.

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards president Tommy Sheppard says the fact that his team may trade their first pick next year due to the Wall/Westbrook deal won’t stop them from trading this year’s pick. Seemed confident they could grab another first in the future if needed. – 12:13 p.m.

Asked Jaden Ivey about his role models and he mentioned Ja Morant and Russell Westbrook as the players he’s looked up to a lot over the years. #NBADraft – 12:09

More on this scenario

Rylan Stiles: Jaden Ivey on his role models “Ja Morant and Russell Westbrook.” I constantly watch movies about them, how they get to their spots. -Going through Twitter @Rylan_Stiles / June 20, 2022

“And I challenged him and he accepted the challenge. That’s part of the word ‘sacrifice’ that we use. And being able to move him to different spaces on the floor as we come back to the attacking side. being off the ball cutting. Sometimes he’s going to play in the dunker. Sometimes he’s going to initiate things. He can post a little bit. He can be the controller in the pick-and-rolls.” So being able to diversify his plan of attack where he’s not just rushing the ball down the field against three defenders every time and having to put his own, as I said in the press conference, running towards the phone booth and put on their capes. Everyone needs to be involved in what we do on both sides of the ball and I think that will make things easier, lighten the load and also allow us to get stronger as the season gets longer. β€”via Heavy.com / Jun 17, 2022

Ham, who told reporters Westbrook still had a ton in the tank at his June 6 introductory press conference, already has an idea of ​​how he can get the most out of the former MVP. “I think the style of play we’re going to have, you know, all these guys – not just Russ but LeBron, AD – they’re going to be able to share the load,” Ham said. β€œAnd one thing that I mentioned to Russ is the way I’m built, the success that I’ve seen – especially more recently over the last nine years and the last four years with Coach Bud in Milwaukee, also in Atlanta, but Milwaukee – one thing that we have always preached and will continue to preach to be the foundation of our teams is a defensive mindset, being able to defend at a high level. β€”via Heavy.com / Jun 17, 2022

The Pacers are seriously discussing trades centered on Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner, sources said. The Wizards and Knicks are interested in Brogdon, armed with picks No. 10 and 11 respectively, sources said. The Hornets have expressed interest in Turner, those sources said. β€”via The Athletic / Jun 20, 2022

Jake Fischer on the Knicks: I think that’s a legit landing spot (for Malcolm Brogdon). There are other things that are being talked about that I won’t say because I don’t believe they’re true. But like, these teams view Brogdon as a negative value contract right now due to injury status. -via Spotify / Jun 16, 2022

The Knicks have also been linked to Brogdon in recent days by league staff. New York is known to have an interest in trading from the No. 11 pick, with a perceived target of Purdue combo guard Jaden Ivey. But if New York doesn’t skip the lottery order — league executives don’t anticipate such a deal — and determines it’s out of the running for future free agent Jalen Brunson, Brogdon has been mentioned as the one of many potential backup options for the Knicks to plug their starting hole. -via Laundress Report / Jun 14, 2022
